I've got a hybrid. Got it not long after Jon got his carved Chrissie. I've done a couple of hundred gigs with the thing. Am I jonesing for a beautiful new old bass, doing something like Unca Toad has done? Of course, what bass player isn't? But my Chrissie hybrid is a work-horse and I can't say much bad about her. OK, I can say that she's got a heavy industrial finish that's way too freaking shiny. I've listened (from an appropriate distance) to much better players than me play it, both arco and pizz, and there's not much to complain about... I'm intimately familiar with a couple of real CCBs and the Chrissie definitely ain't in that minor league. It's a real bass that makes real bass sounds.
